Scripture Skits—Free New Testament Plays

Scripture Skits - New Testament

Children excel at pretending, so get them out of their seats to learn about Scripture with our free New Testament plays.

Key teachings of Jesus from the Gospels form the basis for these Scripture skits:

  • Jesus Teaches How to Live and Love
  • Jesus on the Mountainside: The Feeding of the Five Thousand and the Sermon on the Mount
  • Two Parables of Jesus: The Good Samaritan and the Lost Son

Each short play includes background information and several activities to deepen understanding of the Scripture stories, before you invite children to take the roles of Jesus, Apostles, and other characters to bring the Gospels to life in lively presentations. These scripts and activities were written by Sister Mary Fearon, R.S.M., Pamela Bernstein, and Jane Samuelson.
